Davis, Lydia. Essays One. 2019. New York: Picador, 2020.
—. Essays Two: On Proust, Translation, Foreign Languages, and the City of Arles. New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2021.
I love Davis’s Collected Stories, so when I saw it was possible to get free examination copies of these two books of essays at the virtual MLA 2022 book fair I jumped at the chance. They arrived in the mail yesterday. They are both beautiful volumes and I am excited to have them, but it is bothering me that one is a paperback and one is a hardcover! I am trying not to think about it.
